Today, HTC brought out the One M9+ in India, skipping the speculated launch of the original M9 unveiled at MWC 2015. The One M9 might not make its way to the Indian sub-continent, but we’ve got the bigger Plus version to weigh against its competition. The top of the line smartphone packs hefty specifications, which may even manage to put a dent in Samsung’s market.

Let’s check out how the smartphones fare against each other:

HTC ONE M9+ vs S6 Edge 2

Clearly, the pricing of the phone might lead the audience to shift focus on the Galaxy S6 rather than HTC One M9+, especially since the smartphone runs on a MediaTek processor. The display size of the phones is  similar, and the RAM  of the three handsets also stands parallel. The battery and rear camera of the HTC One M9+ are slightly bumped up, but overall the devices hold comparable specifications.

Since we’ve got our hands on both the devices, we have to admit that the HTC One M9+ feels more sturdy in the hand. Another area where HTC One M9+ wins is the fact that it comes with an expandable memory option, a feature that would be appreciated by many.  HTC has brought the One M9+ to compete with the big-sized rulers in the Indian market. We’ll have to now wait and watch how this move turns out for the company.
